A corticioid fungal species found in mountainous Taiwan, and Yunnan Province of China, is described as a new genus and new species: Purpureocorticium microsporum (Agaricomycetes, Basidiomycota). Morphological study and phylogenetic analyses based on sequence data respectively derived from the large subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA gene (LSU nrDNA) alone and the combined dataset of LSU nrDNA and translation elongation factor 1-α gene (tef1-α) indicated that Purpureocorticium does not belong to any… 
Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
TLDR
Divergence times as additional criterion in ranking provide additional evidence to resolve taxonomic problems in the Basidiomycota taxonomic system, and also provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution.
Genera of corticioid fungi: keys, nomenclature and taxonomy
TLDR
A review of the worldwide corticioid homobasidiomycetes genera is presented and about 420 are accepted and keyed out, described in detail with remarks on their taxonomy and systematics.

Brunneocorticium pyriforme, a new corticioid fungal genus and species belonging to the euagarics clade.
TLDR
B. pyriforme is proposed as a new species and placed in a new genus belonging to the euagarics clade of Homobasidiomycetes, allied to the agaricoid genera Marasmiellus, Campanella, etc.
Amylocorticiales ord. nov. and Jaapiales ord. nov.: Early diverging clades of Agaricomycetidae dominated by corticioid forms
TLDR
The Jaapiales is supported as the sister group of the remainder of the Agaricomycetidae, suggesting that the greatest radiation of pileate-stipitate mushrooms resulted from the elaboration of resupinate ancestors.
The white-rotting genus Phanerochaete is polyphyletic and distributed throughout the phleboid clade of the Polyporales (Basidiomycota)
TLDR
A denser taxon and gene sampling in the phleboid clade will be needed to settle the precise taxonomic affiliation of many of the species presently referred to as Phanerochaete, and numerous nomenclatural changes are doubtlessly looming on the horizon.
Rhizochaete, a new genus of phanerochaetoid fungi
TLDR
Analyses of nuclear ribosomal and internal-transcribed spacer region sequence data support a close relationship between Rhizochaete and Phanerochaete and the new taxon R. brunnea, from southern Argentina, is described and illustrated.
Taxonomy and phylogeny of the genus Megasporoporia and its related genera
TLDR
Taxonomic and phylogenetic studies on Megasporoporia s.l. were carried out, and two new genera were established, and identification keys to the three genera are provided.
The phylogenetic distribution of resupinate forms across the major clades of mushroom‐forming fungi (Homobasidiomycetes)
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships of resupinate Homobasidiomycetes (Corticiaceae s. lat. and others) were studied using ribosomal DNA sequences from a broad sample of res upinate and nonresupinate taxa to support monophyly of the eight major clades of Homob as well as independent lineages corresponding to the Gloeophyllum clade, corticioid clade and Jaapia argillacea.
A phylogenetic overview of the Agaricomycotina
TLDR
The deepest nodes in the Agaricomycetes suggest that the Sebacinales, Cantharellales and Auriculariales are among the most ancient lineages, and the Polyporales are strongly supported as monophyletic and are placed as the sister group of the Thelephorales.

Phylogenetic and phylogenomic overview of the Polyporales
TLDR
The most promising candidate single-copy genes are presented, and nodes in the Polyporales phylogeny critical for the suprageneric taxonomy of the order are identified and discussed.
